Barcelona eased into the Copa del Rey final as they completed a 6-2 aggregate win over Villarreal with a 3-1 win at El Madrigal on Wednesday. Luis Enrique's men will face Athletic Bilbao in the final for the third time in five years on May 30 after the Basques beat Espanyol 2-0 to progress 3-1 on aggregate.

Jonathan dos Santos gave the hosts hope with an equaliser on the night against his old club, but Villarreal's chances of a famous comeback faded when Tomas Pina was shown a straight red card for a heavy challenge on Neymar.
